Teppan French Opa in Bibai Again!
I was a little bit tired of keeping my eyes and ears open for gobbledygook made by the headquarters of Hokkaido Government, so I took youngsters of the government to the source of power to keep faith with them.
Do you remember the name of the Teppan French Restaurant in the outskirt of Bibai City?
Yes, it is "Opa" where we can eat premium beefsteak from Yonezawa Hollow in Yamagata Prefecture.
In such situation this restaurant is the last resort to refresh my brain and beef up my body!
I do not know if the dome-shaped blue object is kiln or oven but was so attracted that I took this photo on the day.
Almost all the harvesting have been done around the restaurant.
No produce, no livestock can be seen now. I can not call this land "Great Plain" like in North America but actually this area produces almost the half of rice in Hokkaido.
These are the guests of the lunch hosted by myself on the day. It is not prohibited to smoke in the restaurant but I hope they have consideration not to smoke while other guests having delicious cuisine.
Every time we have beefsteak lunch course, the chef Mr.Endo shows us the meat to grill beforehand.
Truffe sauce, piquant sauce are added original twist by the chef.
On the left is arranged with piquant sauce of chef's original. Right hand side above is flavoured with truffe salt and the below with garlic &soy-sauce. It's the photo taken at the first time we visited.
Rare ? Medium rare? Doesn't matter!
It melt me down in a second.
Despite I indicate the right spell of "piquant" sauce, the chef calls this sauce "piquaton".
Garlic and soy-sauce flavour is the best for steamed rice and beer.
I'd better get going now and I have to take my wife and her friends this weekend to OPa. I will have to jog around my flat much longer than usual this week. Besides, all the choice for lunch got a little bit more expensive than before by 500 Japanese yen as shown below. Totally, the host of the lunch paid 17,500 Japanese yen for the staff who had worked for the benefit of Hokkaido residents!
